There is More to Capital Fundraising Than Money

Churches can improve their effective ministry by expanding their definition of “capital” to include non-monetary assets when running a capital fundraising program. In addition to money, effective ministry can also benefit from “network capital,” “service capital” and “intellectual capital,” according to Laura Nichol, a leadership consultant at RIO Advisors and active UMC layperson. In an article produced for Faith & Leadership, an online offering of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School that supports faith community leadership, Nichol expands upon the other forms of capital and discusses how networking, serving and learning can energize faith communities.
